interview with david plouffe on "fox news sunday." >> if you look at president regan he accomplished tax reform. there was good second term accomplishments. a few things. one it is not like we are roaming around the white house looking for things to do. on immigration, gun safety, deficit reduction. we have a pretty stacked agenda here and i think there is urgency in the country for us to address this. we will bring the same energy and focus we did to the second term. >> how one of the big questions how about the president be different in the second term and what is high on his list, chris? >> i don't know that it is much of a surprise. obviously job one is the economy and to try to continue the some what anemic recovery we got and try to strengthen it and get unemployment down. and part of that and they are not separate issues is dealing with our huge debt and trying to get that under control. if that were to happen and you saw some certainty on the budget and fiscal policy and spending policy that that would be an enormous incentive to businesses to invest. and then this legislativ

that speech and the second term, but first we're happy to welcome david plouffe to "this week." >> thanks for having me. >> lay out the vision the president expects to deliver to the nation tomorrow. >> well, i think he is going to talk about how our founding principles and values can still guide us in today's modern and changing world. we do look at this in the state of the union as a package, so i think in the inaugural he'll allow his vision for a second term. the detailed blueprint and ideas will be in the state of the union so i think you have to view this as a package and say that our political system does not require us to resolve all of our differences or settle all of our disputes but it is absolutely imperative that our leaders try and seek common ground when it can and should exist. an important part of the speech. >> you've been with the president all through this journey and i was struck something his biographer david marannis noted. he said in the second term, it is less likely to contradict his will to do good. he's going to act with more assurance, and he's goi

advisory, david plouffe and how the first sometime kind of like your wedding. you don't remember much of it because there's just so much going on. he said the second time i'm gonna sit back and enjoy it like renewing your vows almost. take time to enjoy it. i think there's some of that. we are already talking about 2016. certainly, he has just thrown a lot of hints out there. do you think he will be thinking about that right when he takes the oath of office? no. i think he will be thinking about the moment and enjoying it. >> especially his family and grandkids, a very tightly knit delaware family, shall we say and see some of that come through. sonia sotomayor, i assume she has practiced what they are about to do. >> they take this very seriously this is a big deal to these justice. john paul stevens, who did it four years ago in his chambers this the supreme court, an absolutely enormous photograph of him administering the oath to joe biden in 2009. so i think that tells you how important it was to john paul stevens. sonia sotomayor has a book out now, "my beloved world" and that -- sh

first term. all of that aside. is immigration -- the stars really aaligned like david plouffe says? >> i think the odds are better for this than almost anything else on the big ticket items on president obama's second term agenda. that still doesn't guarantee it gets done. basically you have a situation where the democratic party has co-ale coalesced and there's a clear interest for republicans to get something done after an election which mitt romney lost 71% of hispanic voters, despite an unemployment rate in double digits among hispanics. the problem is, as it was in 2005-2006, is the house, very few house republicans in districts with meaningful hispanic population and the likely outcome is that the only way this gets passed is if john boehner is willing to pass a bill that many house republicans oppose. there is a political interest in both parties in getting this done. >> you mentioned 2005 and 2006. i want to bring in the last two big pushes for immigration reform. 1986, ronald reagan fixed the problem of illegal immigration by this. three main parts. employer sanctions, bor

doesn't want us to say it, thank you to david plouff for his service. [ applause ] >> that was president obama naming dennis mcdonough as his new chief of staff and bidding a surprise fond farewell to david plouff, a trusted senior advisor. mcdonough replaces jack lew who is awaiting confirmation for the post of treasury secretary. hans, you are a denison of the white house. a lot of ardor. i didn't see the hearts and rainbows between the men's two heads, but you could feel the love there. >> when the photographers sfwloom in on their notes afterwards, you see a bunch of hearts. >> right, with "dm" in the center. >> they don't really matter. the cabinets don't matter. we get all excited about who the next treasury secretary is iffing to be, who the next transportation secretary. this one matters. denis mcdonough comes from the foreign affairs background. now, his old boss over at the nsc still runs the nsc. now he has a new boss who is denis mcdonough. he will have to deal with the valerie jarrett dynamic, so you could argue -- he has basically been the chief of staff for foreign policy.

think it may change the way we look at the second term. bill: okay. now, what david plouffe is arguing there is common ground despite the perception on the outside. it is here in wash tone between these two parties and this president. where is that, joe? >> well, i mean you look at common ground, i mean you look at the people on both side. i think something like 92% of the american people, regardless of party, think there should be universal background checks on guns. so right there is a place where the president again, putting that, his organization to work, might be able to make a stronger case to many conservatives on the hill as well as the democrats i pointed out who live in some of these more rural states or represent them that that's something they can find common ground and come to agreement on. bill: even last night the vice president joe biden in a speech introducing the president says look for gun control legislation as he termed it and also look for immigration to be two of the biggest points of pushing here in washington to start this term. joe trippi, thank you, sir. >> t

a lot about coming together, something that his senior adviser david plouffe previewed this morning. the republicans say the early signs they see from the president sound like more of the same. >> he's going to talk about our political system doesn't require us to resolve all of our disputes, but it does require us to seek common ground. he will make that point very strongly, that people here in washington need to see common ground. he's going to talk about how the american people, if they are not engaged in these debates in washington, progress and change won't happen. >> there is only one guy who can lead in washington to find a solution to big problems and that's the president. i was surprised this week to see him transition his campaign committee into an ongoing campaign-style effort to haveap impact on the washington debate because it doesn't seem to me that the lesson of the first term would be that that worked out very well. >> i am told there won't be a lot of policy details in the inaugural address, it will be more big-picture themes. the details will come out in the state

both with us. you heard david plouffe's remarks. you worked for president george w. bush. is there common ground that needs to be sought on this issue in this country, do you think? >> i think there can be. look, i have two daughters who are the exact same age as the kids who died in newtown. there are a lot of things the republicans can support like the president announced. better gun owner and safety education and mental health support and helping develop emergency responses and the rest but when the president goes to gun control i think the public support and bipartisan support drops dramatically. there is a fox news poll shows only 22% of americans believe more gun control would have actually stopped an incident in newtown where as 71% think the criminals will get guns anyway. the 71% are right. there sim peer call evidence that shows it. i think it is a mistake to go after gun control. >> criminals will always get guns. go ahead, i'm sorry. martha: go ahead, alan. >> criminals will always get guns. doesn't mean you don't make laws. if that is the case you didn't make laws beca

country moving again back toward prosperity. >> i want to play something that david plouffe said, he sounds optimistic about everybody being able to work together. here's what he told cbs. >> there's vast support for investments in education and manufacturing, immigration reform, gun safety. on the issues the president intends to push and focus on, there's massive support in the country, evening amongst republicans. >> so those two words, massive support, i would imagine that yes, there's massive support but the way that they're going to tackle it is very different. would you agree with that? >> yes, that's absolutely correct. the majority of the american public wants us to get the spending under control here in washington. they want to see prosperity returned. they want jobs to return. it's a question of how we get there. i think that's the place where the president has to move and work with republicans. everybody has to come together and work together to get the agenda moving forward. for the good of the country. >> i want to talk to you about a "washington post" article that's out

negotiations disrespectful and dismissive. according to david plouffe, that is because jack knows the numbers and republicans couldn't pull a fast one. two names are being floated to replace lew, dennis mcdonagh, currently his deputy national security adviser and ron klain. but the latest cabinet nomination is, surprise, creating consternation among who else, congressional republicans. after calling chuck hagen an in-your-face nomination outside of the mainstream, the pugnacious gop has already made known its displeasure with jack lew, calling his nomination controversial, a mistake, and worst of all, irritating. according to senator mike johanns of nebraska, i just think there are economic policies in this administration that haven't been well received and jack lew is in the middle of that. you heard that correctly, america, president obama intends to name a treasury secretary who agrees with his economic policies. meanwhile, purveyor from alabama jeff sessions had this to say. you would think he might want to be gracious in his victory and seek more bipartisan support. if anybody kn

political effect during his second term. the heavies of the obama political team, senior vizer david plouffe, top aides like robert gibbs now will be part of a campaign organization called organizing for action. it was announced today in a video by president obama and the first lady. nothing like this has ever happened before. politicians have talked before about the idea of a permanent campaign but the campaign structure that elected a president has never formally been turned into an organization designed to exist outside that white house in order to help that president get done what he wants to get done. the group says their first three priorities are supporting the changes that the president just proposed to stop gun violence, also climate change, also immigration. any one of those things is a huge political lift. taking on all three of them is a sign, i think, of seriousness for how hard this white house is planning on fighting for those things in the second term and the kinds of resources they are planning to bring to bear. four years ago in 2009, our country inaugurated our fir

he's covering this week including david plouff, senior advisor to president obama. >> we'll talk about the president's agenda for the second term and part of that obviously is gun control. generally speaking, i think the word, the feel you get is this president will be much more combative during his second term, much more confrontational than he was over the last four years. he's come to the conclusion, right or wrong, that he can't make deals with republicans. so he's going to play an outside game, try to build up support among voters and get them to pressure their representatives to see it his way. so it will be very interesting to see on gun control, on the debt, on immigration reform whether that's the way to get action. >> talk about gun control, another guest you'll have this week is senator roy blunt who i heard talking about his reaction to president obama's gun control speech saying he really didn't think the president was doing a lot to compromise and that he thought that the legislation proposed to have a little bite to it. he's going to be on with you. what are you ta
